Happy Birthday, Taylor!



Whoo-hooo, today is Taylor's birthday and we're celebrating Cupcake Friday style! Stop by Taylor's blog to check out the TECC sketch this week and send her some BIG happy birthday wishes while you're there.

Taylor, I hope you have an AMAZING birthday today....and do something REALLY fun!! I hope you like the card too. It's on it's way to you! {{Huge Happy Birthday Hugs}}


The card measures 5" square. The main image and sentiment were stamped in black craft ink, heat embossed wtih clear EP, and watercolored. The Razzleberry mat behind the main image is up on foam tape. Quick note about that Prism Razzleberry CS....for you Rose Red and/or Purely Pomegranate fans (like me), this Prism color is REALLY close to those SU colors. The satin bows were tied with my Bow Easy. Have you ever tried Taylor's 3/8" satin ribbon??....I'm sure I've told you before, but I'll tell you again, it's my very favorite! It's pretty, it ties like a dream, and it's SOFT. I can't say enough good things about this ribbon. Product links to the TE store are in the supply list below.



Because Taylor is THE cupcake queen...well...I just HAD to make sure the inside totally SCREAMED cupcakes so I added this big and glittery *cupcakes* sticker that was part of my Cupcake Bundle for the June release. Note: the Cupcake Bundle has sold out, but Taylor does have the Sweet Treats Stickers available in the store.
